    Mark Consuelos was not happy with trolls who took to social media to body shame his wife, Kelly Ripa, for wearing a bikini. 

    The 46-year-old actor shared a photo of his wife, 47, on Instagram calling her "the sexy one," but his followers thought otherwise inferring that Ripa was too old to be wearing a bikini. 


    Sultry Sundays with the sexy one are my fave...

    Offended by the comments,  Consuelos decided to respond to the haters a few days later. "I posted this pic of the woman I most admire. As a playful tribute to my wife who I'm proud of in endless ways," Consuelos said in an Instagram comment.

    "She works extremely hard in her professional life and her commitment to exercise, healthy diet is admirable and the benefits show... If that offends you in some way, if it triggers you, or some other psychosis you're suffering from, I suggest you get over it and get used to it."

    He finished his post by encouraging Ripa to "keep killing it." 

    Consuelos and Ripa have been married for 21 years and have three kids: Michael, 20, Lola, 16, and Joaquin, 15.
